The ZDX has proved itself to be sporty, reliable conveyance for long drives. One staffer recently drove it to Las Vegas to cover a trade show, "and was pleasantly surprised by this crossover. Good acceleration and excellent passing power, but it could use a little more juice or a little less weight. I really like the way this thing handles, and I like the ride. It wasn't nearly as rough as I'd feared. I found the seats comfortable and never needed to stop and stretch. But things do get noisy at speed. Also made it home from Vegas on a single tank, with a good amount of fuel left. Getting inside is a little tricky; how exactly do you get into the rear seats without hitting your head?"
According to executive editor Edward Loh, "The only thing missing is breathtaking forward velocity."
